Police re-arrested a 37-year-old man on Wednesday for allegedly kidnapping and keeping a Hyogo Prefecture junior high school student at his home in the city of Honjo, Saitama Prefecture, for about two months.

The news of the re-arrest comes just several days after a similar case made headlines in which a 35-year-old man in Tochigi Prefecture was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and confining two teenage girls in his apartment.
